This is the story of the LAUGHTON FAMILY TREE from the time of Gilbert Laughton (Orkney, Scotland, 1771) until the date of this posting by Richard Van Wyck Laughton (Ontario, Canada, 1952) on February 21, 2012. The credit for the creation of this work rests with my Uncle Paul MacDonell Laughton (Canada, 1923) who painstakingly collected the vast majority of this information from paper records, long before the Internet (Web) was in existence. Since 1986 I have added to Uncle Paul's project, starting with the First World War military records, which grew to what we have today, the whole Laughton family as best as we could find. All of this information was assembled and posted to the Internet (http://www.censol.ca/research/familytree) but since I know someday that web site will be gone I have merged most of the information into a PDF file and uploaded it to the Internet Archives (http://archive.org) where I have stored a vast amount of other research materials (search for "rlaughton"). Not all of the information posted today is up-to-date, as even the passing of Uncle Paul on September 26, 2009 is not recorded on the index. A great deal of additional information was added to the LAUGHTON FAMILY TREE as family members heard about the project and sent in additional information from British Columbia, California, Arizona, New Zealand and Scotland, to name a few. What you will find here is all the web pages converted to PDF in the order of the main web file "ERAS", followed by copies of all of the documents that have been submitted. Many of the pictures, but not all, are on the individual pages in this file (746 pages at this point in time). I will come back in the future to update this file but at least for now it is preserved on the Archive.org web site. You can contact me by e-mail for now at email@example.com (in honour of our founder) or you can check for updates on the TelNic Network (http://ancestors.laughton.tel). I hope someday that one of our offspring comes across this page on the Archive site and learns about the Laughton Family.
